Proposal description

OVERVIEW

Operation Underground Railroad
was founded in December 2013 and has gathered the world's experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.'s Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts.

These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world. Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins.

RESOURCES


DIGITAL CURRENCY

DASH is a digital currency like Bitcoin but different in that budget proposals can be submitted and if there are enough Yes votes from masternodes then they will be funded. Additionally, the ability for donors to fund OUR in this more discreet method greatly reduces their risk of retribution from the criminal organizations engaged in human trafficking.

If this DASH budget proposal gets enough Yes votes by November 3, 2017 then Operation Underground Railroad will be able to fund three raids to liberate an estimated 40 children.

We would like to see which digital currency can contribute more donations to fund the rescue of children from sex slavery: DASH or Bitcoin.

For those who would like to contribute but do not have a DASH masternode then you can also donate DASH or Bitcoin here:

DASH: XfRjEDPDboAuCvFKHqoq9BCwCTwLqWe5NQ

Bitcoin: 1MSkAnoGC7ac4earLBJSrZXrVA9d84XAzT

Please help support the work of Underground Railroad!

there must be some misunderstanding !
The budget and its proposals are for the Dash Network (coding , employment, marketing , .....)
charity work should be approach in personal fundraisers or the likes !

Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if this got voted through, it would blow the budget and get dropped from the payments list. See Lines #104 -> #114 https://github.com/dashpay/sentinel/blob/master/lib/dashlib.py

If we are constantly maxing out our budget, we may need to ask Rango to add more guidance to DC proposal and voting pages.

Maybe DC could display the current available monthly budget on the DC Create Proposal page.

DC could also issue a warning to voters (when budget is looking to be maxed out), that voting YES on a new small proposal might potentially bump our larger single or multi-period proposals off the payments list.

Obvious no. Even if you want to support the organization on your own, don't even think about donating to that address without a solid verification or any kind of additional explanation directly from the organization (if this was legit, why would they even create this proposal without having that already in place?). This looks like a full blown scam...

Well that's $1500 you've just pissed away... you could have liberated approx. 1/15th of a child with that money. Shame on you!

While I think everyone approves of what you're doing. we are not in a position to spend over a million dollars of our budget on something that has absolutely nothing to do with advancing our DAO.

Additionally, we have never heard of you before and you come in and ask for a million dollars. Even if you're proposal did advance Dash, I don't think you have established any level of trust that we would just hand over that much money to what is essentially an unknown.

Prediction: After this frivolous proposal fails JP Buntix will publish an article named "Dash approves of sex slavery" or similar and all the trolls will circlejerk around it.

Obvious no.

This sounds like big load of BS, doing raids does not cost 1 million. If you have a crack team, to bust up illegal activities. All you need is some guns, and that crack probably already has there one

No the less, if you setup a scam at the very least you should post where your going to spend it on.

The budget was designed for marketing and development, not guns and glory.

I personally encourage the objectives of this project, however accepting donations would be the only way to achieve a successful round of fundraising.

A number of charities may use this proposal approach to get funding in the future, while displacing the available funds for many other smaller development projects. The best thing to do is encourage sizeable individual donations via Dash. We are already working towards solutions that will literally change the world for the better, especially for underprivileged people. Dash’s continuing progress is paramount to this vision and using the budget strictly for what is it intended is critical.

They have listed their address, donate generously if you support this project regardless of your vote.

Dash funding is not for charities. Furthermore, there is no way we can verify the validity of this request for funding.

I've voted no to this but Dash funding can be for anything MN choose and that can indeed be Charity's.

Why is it all the time that you people wait for retirement before actually doing your job and expect to be paid by the tax-payer twice?

Incredible isn't it? I saw this proposal last night when it was brand new. I voted against it immediately but this morning at one time there were something like 25 yes and less than 10 no. As you say, who on earth was voting for this? I don't understand.

If there was any pre-proposal discussion for this, I haven't seen it yet. I also note that the website mentioned in this proposal does not list any crypto currency addresses.

You need to gather reputation and trust overtime by asking for smaller amounts first. You are asking for way too much. Also pitching dash against Bitcoin is just manipulation. We are not in opposition to Bitcoin.

This looks way too expensive and I don't see how it can benefit the Dash network. At present there are only 2277 Dash available in this budget cycle without de-funding other projects. An easy NO for me.

I would think kids not living as sex slaves benefits all humankind, and by extension dash - why not think of them as future dash adopters if it helps? *smh*

Look, first of all I don't know who you are. I do not see any discussion as a pre-proposal on the forum. I do not see you in the Dash Slack. What is your relationship to Operation Underground Railway? How would we be assured that you really are representing OUR and are not some scammer who has chosen this cause to front your attempt to trick us out of a million bucks?

Second of all, at the time you posted your proposal there are 6651 Dash to be distributed in the current round but 4374 are already allocated, which leaves just 2277 available. So if we were mad enough to vote this through, and reject every other proposal that is yet to be posted this month, you would still have to pass with sufficient majority to bump off the Alt36 proposal, or a number of already approved multi-month projects.

Dash is not a charity. The treasury exists to fund projects that will further the Dash network. Emotional blackmail is not a valid reason to fund a project. If individual members of the Dash community want to contribute to you it is up to them, but this is not something for the treasury imho.

"We would like to see which digital currency can contribute more donations to fund the rescue of children from sex slavery: DASH or Bitcoin"

I'm really not a fan of the implied 'who loves kids more? - btc or dash owners?

Sadly I imagine your work is a marathon and not a sprint? So a smaller request made over a series of months would have had a far greater chance of success. That said this is very far from being an 'easy no for me' so donation on the way if only to help recoup your proposal fee.
